Better Complex Gutenberg Blocks with Web Components & Stencil.js
Speaker: Rob Ruiz Audience: Developers/Programmers Tech: PHP, Javascript(ES6), React, Angular Gutenberg is upon us. Developers: you can not put off learning how to make blocks any longer. I'm sure you've looked into it - and let's be's complicated. Making something simple is manageable. But making something more complex is almost unimaginable. Well what if I told you there was a solution that offers a workflow that allows you to build your block OUTSIDE of Gutenberg first. Then putting it in Gutenberg is SUPER fast. Too good to be true? Think again... At this talk, Rob will be discussing a workflow that seems like a match made in heaven. Learn to build complex, completely self-contained, and extremely reactive WordPress page elements as Web Components with Stencil.js. Then see how stupid-simple it is to convert these into Gutenberg Blocks. It's almost too beautiful. Want to gain an edge in the new Gutenberg space with your own complex blocks? Then this talk is for you.

    What we're about ( - official website

    WP Omaha is a volunteer-led organization focused on growing and educating the WordPress community in Omaha, Nebraska and its surrounding communities. Our members include a broad range of WordPress users: new and experienced developers, site owners, site administrators, designers, and more.

    The diversity of our members inspired us to hold multiple WordPress Meetups each month, making it easy for anyone interested in advancing their WordPress skills to find a relevant topic and session. No matter your level of experience and expertise, there’s a WP Omaha Meetup for you:

    WP Admin - This Meetup is for general WordPress users with little to no technical web knowledge. If you are a blogger, small business owner, or beginner web designer, this is the Meetup for you. WP Admin Meetups are generally held the fourth Thursday of every month from 6-8pm at Agape Red. When the fourth Thursday falls on or near a holiday, as it does in November and December, we will meet on the third Thursday.

    WP Dev - This Meetup is for developers. We get into programming/coding themes, plugins, and any other custom WordPress functionality. At these Meetups we learn to push the boundaries of WordPress. WP Dev Meetups are generally held the second Thursday of every month from 6-8pm at Brain Exchange.

    WP Open Help Desk - This Meetup is for people that either need help or would like to help others with current WordPress projects or small problems/issues. There is strength in numbers. Bring your laptop & get connected with the community. WP Open Help Desk Meetups will be announced as they are scheduled.

    Please be sure to RSVP via If you decide last minute that you can not attend the Meetup even though you confirmed an RSVP, please adjust your RSVP as sometimes we base food purchases on the number of people attending.
